Partnering with Outside Organizations

Events can be the lifeblood of a successful organization.  They help you build awareness and membership, and ultimately give your chapter a louder voice in your community.  However, hosting events can become challenging endeavors.  To provide a better experience for attendees and to improve your on-campus relationships, we highly suggest building partnerships with other like-minded organizations

Why Partner?

Any event can be made better through teamwork and collaboration. Working alongside amenable clubs who are sympathetic to our cause allows us to cast a wider net and build lasting relationships. Ultimately this will allow us to:

  1. Increase Membership
  2. Raise Awareness
  3. Split Costs & Share Materials
  4. Reach a Wider Audience

Types of Groups to Partner With:

Discovering mutual causes to rally around will help you find an ideal partnership for an event or campaign. Depending on your audience, you may want to consider extending invitations to one of the following categories of organizations:

  1. Academic (e.g. International Relations Council)
  2. Service/Social Action (e.g. Amnesty International, Circle K, Mortar Board)
  3. Cultural/International (e.g. African & Latino Alliance of Students)
  4. Academic/Professional (e.g. Engineers Without Borders, Future Business Leaders)

The UN touches a breadth of issues related to health, security, science, politics, and more. The sky is the limit for collaboration!

Maintaining the Relationship:

Growing the relationship beyond a single event is always ideal. Consider hosting annual events together while engaging their membership throughout the year with activities of your own. Create a lasting relationship between your groups and find new ways to work together on events like:

  • Advocacy Efforts
  • Awareness Campaigns
  • Award Ceremonies
  • Model UN Conferences
  • Debates
  • Donation Drives
  • Fundraisers
  • Speaking Engagements
